How we are helping those most in need

April 1, 2020

We know that many people from the Scottish Episcopal Church are key workers, or are volunteering to support vital networks during the coronavirus pandemic.

Some will have signed up to the Scottish Government’s national volunteering campaign, Scotland Cares, launched this week. See…/national-volunteering-plan-for-coro…/

Others will have been involved already. SEC congregations have long been active in initiatives which support the most vulnerable in society, as our picture here shows.

Not everyone is in a position to help at this time for very good reasons, and absolutely no-one should feel that they are not ‘doing their bit’. Safety is paramount.

But if you are involved in any activity which helps to protect or assist the unwell, the isolated and the vulnerable in our communities who are in need at this time of crisis, we would like to hear from you.

Please share these uplifting experiences here if you can, either by posting stories and photos on the SEC’s facebook page or by emailing to

Photos of workers and helpers in action are welcome; please just ensure we respect the privacy of the vulnerable and those who would not want to appear on social media.
